I'm using a dual head ir blaster which I bought from
http://www.irblaster.info/
Using the JVC_RAW codes I can change the channels on the receiver which is
on codeset 1 with either of the two heads on the blaster. So I know it at
least works for some ir codes.
Is it possible that I have the blaster positioned over the wrong eye on
the receiver? I notice that there are what looks like three ir led's on
the front.
Do I maybe have the blaster too close to the receiver or something?
Are there different flavors of the 311 receivers?
Thanks again!
 Jeff
